Intelligence test orientations to identify giftedness suggest that gifted learners are those who answer quickly a number of types of complex questions. Speeding these children through the education system as quickly as possible might meet their needs. Gifted children think differently from non-gifted children, if they’re educated separately and are provided with a qualitatively different curriculum, they will develop much better in their growing process.
Every child is able to learn something, but some children are able to learn much more than other children. Not every child is truly gifted. Most are average, and many are be low average. It doesn’t serve the needs of children with intellectual deficits to pretend that they are geniuses, and it doesn’t serve the needs of truly gifted children to pretend that they are just like their classmates. They know better, and need to learn more.
If we don’t have special teaching for the intelligent kids, the gifted student had no one at her(此处原文就是her，不知道为什么，也许怕写his引起女权主义者的抗议吧，我瞎猜的呵呵) intellectual level to interact with. If all children are grouped together regardless of intellectual ability, teachers will be forced to teach to the students of lowest ability while the rest of the class waits for them to catch up. In such an environment, the problem seem to be arising when the children are moving too slowly through the school system and are not getting stimulated enough, thus resulting in them becoming bored, losing faith in the education system and rebelling in many ways. Some are leaving early due to work being too easy and some are seeking attention through being class clown through boredom
The fact is that intellectually gifted children are different from other students, and pretending that it won’t make them any less above average. When we refund programs for gifted and talented students, we should invest in the children that have the greatest potential to improve the lives of the next generation.
